    Just thought ya’d like to know:
    The Watchmen is on IMDb:

    I had no idea!
    By the way, V for Vendetta rocked me like 1984 (both versions) did.

    And, isn’t saying “Snakes on a plane!” the same as saying “what can you do about it”? Like in, there’s nothing that you can do about it.
    Just wondering.

    Not all Germans listen(ed) to David Hasselhoff! There are some of us, that do have a good taste in music. Enough said.

    Great show :)
